Reaction to Nihilistic Modernism

Artist burns painting in protest of modern art’s rejection of our collective sensibilities and sensual nature; rendering even landscapes to depressing views of our denatured industrialized cities.

And now I am seeing textural paintings designed to replace dirt on people’s monotonous sterilized walls. It is an intellectually interesting movement, but seems insane to me. Maybe I should try one to see if any one actually likes them.

I love classical figurative surrealism, even if it can be intellectual. But I am bored by the lack of drama in contemporary realism. I just want people to fall in love with my art.

  Simply adorable will not do. In fact an artist has a better chance of selling pure shock value. Hollywood sells so much of that I think there must be a dangerous amount of crazy people running the world.

Paintings by  Nhoj Yesdnil

Nhoj Yesdnil  (ananym) has been making artwork (such as dulcimers, drums, bowls, and other sculpture) in Port Townsend since 1982.

After being declared a hopeless case by the powers that be for not fitting into the dominant paradigm of adversarial dialectics and linear thought, he spent most of his life in the field of “poverty life style” research before discovering the one true religion: introspective art. “If only I had been taught about lateral thought when I was a child”.

He started with existential art but soon discovered the right path: Adorable Realism. So now he is writing and illustrating children’s books, which may take a few years to get published.

His website is funnyfarmart.com  email me if your realy wanting a painting: jawnn.geo@yahoo.com Also one face book and flickr:
